I’m planning a trip to Chicago for next October. I’m looking for a decent hotel which best fits the below criteria. Before I google it, I’d like to ask for recommendations from people with experience of staying in Chicago/Chain hotels.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks In Advance for all responses
Time: 5 days in Oct 09
Room for one person En-Suite
€80 to €100 per night
Conveniently located near public transport (thinking of access to O’Hare Airport)
Located in a respectable neighbourhood
Rooms with good soundproofing
Not a hostel.
The Hotel Sofitel Chicago O-Hare is just one stop down the subway system heading from the airport towards downtown (The stop is called the Rosemont stop). You can easily walk there from where the metro lets you off (it's less than one block).
Hotel rates right now vary from 84 euros for a double bed to 95 euros for a king-sized bed. I presume rates will be slightly higher in October if the economy improves, but I wouldn't expect a massive change. In fact, I'll bet you can lock these rates in if you book now and pay ahead of time.
There is a Renaissance Marriott at the next stop down the subway line (the stop is called Cumberland), but that will cost you about 110 euros for a room.
Check out the rates at House of Blues in Chicago. Great location! Also, public transportation is easy, cheap, and convenient in Chicago. You won't have any problems getting around.
